as forces on the right line up to stop him. >> obama is seeking political victory. >> tonight karen finney and e.j. dionne on the president's historic proposal and the republican pushback. >> just remind everybody, obama is not going to be president forever. >>> hillary clinton takes a powerful curtain call at foggy bottom. >> it's really important that women are out there competing at the highest levels of government and business. >> i'll tell you if she dropped any hints about 2016. >>> plus, the sandy bill passes in the senate. but not before 36 republicans totally disgrace themselves. i'll introduce you tonight to the sandy 36. >>> and it's a modern-day civil rights struggle between workers and management in the state of mississippi. i'll tell you why these nissan employees say they're being denied a voice in the workplace. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching there is more hope tonight for 11 million people who are currently living in fear. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform. the time has come. now is
republicans. he will give political cover to some who may want to go up against president obama. >> oh, i think that's right. i think that's one quadrant, but, of course, you had john waern, who is also a republican, former chairman of that committee, who strongly defended hagel and his views, and sam nunn on the democratic side. there are a lot of former chairman around that may have other issues. people aren't looking at thad cochran. thad cochran came out as the first republican to issue p public support for hagel, and he was one vote away from beating trent lott for senate majority leader some years ago. you have leaders. this is -- as john mccain said, this is not a neat difference among friends. there are deep idealogical differences about world view and america's place in the world, and i think that those opposed to hagel are trying to get a bandwagoning effect happening. i've talked to senator shumer and others who don't see that happening. i have talked privately to a couple of republican senators who are keeping their powder dry right now, but they're not quite ready to jump in
outbreak and the action the fda just took. it is all happening now patti ann: get ready for political fireworks. president obama right now on his way to las vegas where he is expected to unveil his plan for immigration reform. this one-day after a bipartisan group of senators laid out their own proposal. hello, everyone, i'm patti ann browne in for jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the president's plan expected to mirror much of the senator's blueprint but some key differences could spark a fierce debate. molly henneberg is live at the white house with more. those differences, molly, what are they? >> reporter: hi, jon. the white house says the president believes the senate framework is very good, as a quote, cause for hope but there isn't an actual piece of legislation yet so the white house is very careful not to comment too much what the president would would not like about it. there is a may be a key difference the president may want a faster path to citizenship than the by partisan senate group may want. the white house is not clear how much border security the president would want
and sounded like a grouch attacking president obama. a very political speech which i thought was discordant yesterday. there were two -- captain kelly, gabby giffords's husband, and the captain of the bald moore county sheriff's department james johnson who spoke very powerfully articulately and eloquently for common sense gun control measures, and then the other side of the panel, there were three gun nuts on the panel. david coppel, a professor from denver, a woman gail trotter, and wayne lapierre from the nra. gail trotter was out of her mine. i mean, she said guns -- i got the exact quote here -- that guns have to -- guns keep women safe. guns keep women safe. guns make women safe is the exact quote. and every mother needs an ak-15 in the home to protect their kids. and of course wayne lapierre comes back and says the only answer is we have to make every school an armed camp. >> it's time to throw an immediate blanket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already, because it works, and that somebody is grow
are covering the interview that has everybody talking. president obama's joint sit-down with outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. was it his official nod for her potential 2016 run? >> there's no political tea leaves to be read here? >> we don't have any tea. we've got some water here, the best i can tell. but, you know, this has been just the most extraordinary honor. >> is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton? doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> it would have covered up the awkward fact that they're setting her up for, you know, a presidential run if they broke some news. >> i love joe biden. i think he's earned a shot at it. but if hillary clinton wants to run how do you stand in the way of history? >> joining me now is msnbc and nbc latino contributor, victoria soto. fellow at the university of texas. great to have you here in person. let's jump in to explain to everybody the bipartisan framework. there are eight different sections. let's go over the first four. contingent on securing border and combatting visa oversay, increase surveillance equipment and agents a
. >> the political argument that is looking at marco rubio. we know it's the number you see on the screen. obama over romney over latino voters. you have the growing latino areas. i wonder if there is a second argument that republicans are considering or ought to consider. that is how they are toned on this and defined the rhetoric and affects non-latino voters. how much do you think this hurt the republican party's brain that it took this long to get to this point on this issue? >> well, the argument is also that when you want compassionate conservatism, it's not just the target group, but also for john latinos. the fiscal conservative who is may not love or hate latinos, but they cringe at the rhetoric. i agree that this is not just an issue about latinos, but softening the general image of the republican party. it's gone so far to the right with the peak of the 2010 tea party movement, that they try to buff the edges out. >> the first thing is border security. with enforcement promises never materialized, that is untrue. the 2007 bill asked for several things that we are super serving or doing mea
at a bipartisan manner when acting in government. >> and here is the other striking political moment. john mccain explains what he thinks will be necessary to pass this bill, including what he calls the leadership of president obama. let's listen to this. >> i am confident the majority of both houses, led by the president of the united states, who made this a major campaign issue, that we will succeed. but we're not going to get everybody on board. >> steve kornacki, nothing provprove s more strongly than that, that elections do have consequences. >> i can't help but think with john mccain, you're looking at a protection of legacy there. his reputation as a maverick was a bit over sold, what it really reflects, the guy is a sore loser, we saw it in the wake of the 2002 election. he was a very conservative member of the senate who happened to lose to george w. bush and took out all the grudges of george w. bush, then he was a mavericky liberal. went back to the right, now you have a guy here his term is going to be up in 2016. he will be 80 years old. this is an issue he really cares about and
't be misled here. here's something this debate is not about, wls obama wants to use immigration as a way 0 club republicans or get a bill. it's not a question. the idea that anyone outside of political partisans believe that the president doesn't want to actually sign legislation now to fulfill a campaign promise is a bit naive. maybe that was the calculus in 2010. it was not the calculus this time. sure the president is using campaign tactics to pressure congress but he wants the legislative win. he already got the political win. it's called a second term. finally, friday is hillary clinton's last day in office. now that her successor has been confirmed, she is talking to the press, including andrea mitchell in a series of exit interviews. yesterday clinton weighed in on what may be the most underreports story in washington, the unrest taking place in egypt right now. clinton stood by one of the most consciousal foreign policy decisions the administration made that gets little little -- the ouster of mubarak. she responded to the head of the army who said that the state could fall part. >
't occur but his show will. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> senate republican leader mitch mcconnell famously vowed to make barack obama a one-term president, and now mcconnell finds some tough sledding in his own bid for re-election. a new poll by the louisville carrier journal finds just 17% of kentucky voters, about 1 in 6, plan to support the senator when he runs for re-election. not a good start, mitch. twice as many say they're going to vote against him. again, not a good start, senator. and to make things worse for mcconnell, democratic groups on the left if there are any in kentucky are vowing to work with tea party groups on the right to oust him during the republican party. primary. they're going to double-team this guy. good luck there, mitch. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." anybody who watches "hardball" knows i love politics. another thing i love are movies and tv shows about politics, and i can't remember a time when there were more great films and shows to choose from. look at this. "lincoln," "argo," all on the sbig screen. sitcoms like
. >> there are few things historically speaking that are seen as bigger political lifts in washington than immigration reform or than gun reform. but just eight days into this second term, the obama administration is working actively to accomplish both of these things simultaneously. today president obama and vice president biden met with police chiefs and local sheriffs from around the country, including police chiefs from newtown, connecticut, aurora, colorado, and oak creek, wisconsin, all of which have endured major mass shootings just within the past six months. vice president biden also held a roundtable discussion on gun reform in richmond, virginia on friday. he had the homeland secretary and health secretary with him there. president obama himself made a high profile reference to gun reform in his inauguration speech last week. other cabinet members, including the attorney general, have been making their own news on moving forward on gun reform, mental health reform, background checks. the administration, in other words, doing everything they can to not only move on this, but to k
been identified. and the morning you see the obama administration interested in action rather than politics, you're going to have a different kind of tone. but we also should be looking at two things. what are the psychiatric problems and to what degree does the federal privacy law make it almost impossible to identify people who have psychological problems? i suspect we're going to find this tragic situation in alabama right this minute involves somebody with a deep psychological problem. and then, second, i think we have to look at, what is happening in big cities, where it is, in fact, largely pistols that are involved, and largely gangs that are involved? >> let me ask you about another big issue that we've been talking about a lot this week, the issue of immigration. there's been a big bipartisan push, you know, this week, including republicans, marco rubio, john mccain, talking about this comprehensive immigration reform. but, clearly, not all republicans are on board with this latest push. listen here to senator david vitter. >> i love and respect marco. i think he's just am
that and what marco rubio said. there is not one consistent strategy. remember a few years ago president obama was boxed in by immigration. he had put the enforcement into effect, but he hadn't sort of made the system more gentle, more welcoming. politically he was in a bad spot with latino voters. a ton of pressure. now the funny thing about the situation is that politically, just politically, this is a win for him either way. >> even the dream act was there. there was a question as to what was going to happen with that. now through executive order he is somer assaulting. >> you have bobby jindahl saying we can't be the stupid party anymore. who wins out? >> they're all wrong. they're talking about the problem with the party -- the problem with the party is policy. seven days after the election, the ohio legislature, i assume with the blessing of governor kasich passes -- defeated in mississippi. i mean, what were they thinking? what are they thinking? i think they've got to look at themselves and say we've got to control the tea party aspect of this party. we've got to get back to taking pos
biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists. the irs is going after political groups hiding behind the social welfare label. >> jennifer: here is what we know when it comes to gun safety in congress. president obama wants gunun safety legislation. house republicans don't like president obama, but house republicans do like police officers. so with that in mind today, president obama invited 13 police chiefs and sheriffs to the white house to discuss gun violence. >> if law enforcement officials who are dealing with this stuff every single day can come to some basic consensus, congress will be paying at attention to them and we'll be able to make progress. >> jennifer: progress that will be novel, but if the senate can move ahead with immigration reform, i say anything is possible. joining me now is democratic strategist donnie fowler. welcome back. >> good to be here. >> jennifer: good policy to have the chiefs and sheriffs come and make the pitch on gun safety. >> there is no more credibility. >> jennifer: i totally agree. >> they are certainly the ones that th
be on the losing sides of this debate given the political atmosphere after this election. >> keep in mind if obama wants to get something done, he would go with a piece meal approach. if it's omni bus, it's ominous. >> you read his article in the "wall street journal." >> voters will vote republican if you give them amnesty. it doesn't work. >> he got 44% of the vote in 2004. >> our job is to make sure reform means we fix the problem that brought us to where we are today. we don't have to do this every years. we have the beginning of a dialogue andy we are a long way from the finish line. >> one thing you need to see in a comprehensive bill. >> mandatory e verify. the open field searches. we are not going down the guessworker program unless we appeal the ban. the jordan commission over 30 years of saying we have to get the preferences. >> the president of the federation for american reform. loretta sanchez is the u.s. congresswoman from california. a democrat. this is just beginning. after sench years of being sem conscious, ariel sharon is showing what is being described as significant brain acti
john kerry. >> sreenivasan: kerry has been an unofficial envoy for the obama administration in recent years. he will succeed hillary clinton, who is stepping down after serving as secretary of state since 2009. in egypt, the army chief warned the country's political crisis could lead to the "collapse" of the state. general abdel-fattah el-sisi issued the warning as protests and violence extended into a sixth day. in port said, thousands of people marched in funerals for some of the 60 people killed since last week. and in cairo, groups of protesters fought again with riot police. the protests are aimed at president mohamed morsi and his islamist-dominated government. evidence of a new massacre surfaced in syria today. at least 65 bodies were found in aleppo. the victims had been bound and shot in the head, but it was unclear who was responsible. meanwhile, the plight of thousands of refugees continued to worsen. some have even sought shelter in ancient ruins at serjilla, in northwestern syria. john irvine of independent television news reports. >> three weeks old. reporter: and what a

to have cars from the 1950s. it's another thing when your whole political ideology is coming out, is 50 or 60 years old and it's been proven not to work. >> does the travel ban stay in place for the entire second term of obama? we'll see. >>> well, we're just a few minutes away now from the start of chuck hagel's confirmation hearing. we're going to bring that to you live as soon as it starts. plus, another one of president obama's cabinet picks hits a little bit of a bump in the road. democrats publicly criticizing cia nominee, john brennan. my gaggle's going to join me next early as we prepare for hagel and other stuff. first, a look ahead at the president's schedule. a quiet day for him on the record, with the focus on chuck hagel. but vice president biden, by the way, goes up to capitol hill to meet with senate democrats on guns. you're watching "the daily rundown," only on msnbc. people love our potpourri parties. it's a smell of a good time. this is the juniper! oh that is magical.

not to, and so president obama moved quickly with his dream proposals. >> so we never got that detailed plan from marco rubio to address the problem of kids who are brought here illegal. a big opportunity for marco rubio to show political skills, he is now the emissary to conservative republicans in the house and conservative news media to make the case that this is not amnesty, that this is an acceptable proposal that they could embrace, and if he manages to do that, that will be a great achievement on his part for a pretty junior senator. >> thanks very much. susan page, chris, thanks both. joining me now for more on the immigration debate, minnesota senator amy, member of the joint economic committee. this is a big deal economically potentially, senator, because as business people are telling you and as i'm hearing from business people, college presidents and others as i'm sure you've heard this is a major economic component where we're training young people from around the world giving them ph.d.s and then kicking them out. >> exactly. that's why senator hatch, senator rubio, and se
eight years of the obama presidency is ignorant of american history and the greater challenges we have faced. what we need are political leaders who will clearly and boldly state the case for reform. if that means blocking obama's agenda or passing our reforms and have obama explain why he is opposed to them. we should articulate our goals and policy programmings and explain them. >> tom cotton of arkansas. [applause] >> good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. i'm the director of the at the heritage society. welcome to our conversation about life. it is strategically timed on this 40th anniversary on the infamous roe v. wade decision. hundreds of thousands of people gathered on the mall to march for life. thank you for standing for life. a generation and a half have grown up in the shadow of roe. we are thankful for those pro life leaders who have cast life into the darkness created by the ethic of roe. today, we are joined we -- by foreof the lights. chuck donovon is the president of the institute. chuck has served the pro life cause at the national right to life committee in the reagan
of late, but today an associated press raised these concerns saying, quote: in politics power resides in the moment. any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout or at least distract him as he carefully tries to put his imprint on initiatives dealing with immigration and gun violence. let's talk about it with a.b. stoddard, an associate editor and columnist for "the hill." a.b., the president has been mostly talking about immigration and gun violence lately, and yet we still have an unemployment rate at 7.8%. if labor force participation were the same as when he took office, it would be over 10%. we've got a fall in our nation's economic output in the last quarter, and you've got new, um, shrinking of consumer confidence. those are some pretty big issues. does that threaten to derail what the president wants to accomplish? >> well, it will. you mentioned before whether or not these issues would distract him. i mean, a troubled economy has to distract him whether or not he actually focuses on it is another question. much of these last few months we
